Josh has been attending Calvary Chapel La Mirada since 2006.  In 2007, Josh began leading worship in the children's ministry. In 2009, he set out to help plant Calvary Chapel La Palma and became part of their worship team.  As they rooted themselves firmly in La Palma, Josh came back to Calvary Chapel La Mirada and joined the worship team in March of 2010.  That same year, he began leading worship for the High School Ministry forming a youth band with his siblings and friends called Before The Throne.  A few months later they began leading worship together in the main sanctuary for the whole church.  In September of 2012, he attended School of Worship at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa which is where he heard the calling Jesus had placed on his heart to become a worship pastor.  He graduated in May of 2013 and began becoming heavily involved in co leading the worship ministry.  In January of 2015, he became the Worship Pastor at Calvary Chapel La Mirada.  In March of 2016, Josh married his wife, Courtney, whom he had met here at Calvary La Mirada.

Josh is currently serving as the Worship Pastor, Media Director as well as the Grounds Director.

A quote that has encouraged Josh through the years to worship The Lord through the aid of music is one by Bob Kauflin from his book Worship Matters:

"An effective corporate worship leader,
aided and led by the Holy Spirit,
skillfully combines biblical truth with music
to magnify the worth of God and the redemptive work of Jesus Christ,
thereby motivating the gathered church
to join him in proclaiming and cherishing the truth about God
and seeking to live all of life for the glory of God."

"I will sing of the lovingkindness of the LORD forever; To all generations I will make known Your faithfulness with my mouth." (Psalms 89:1)
